(For a brief history and context on the Darby family see this page)

Anne was born circa 1750. She was the daughter of William Brett and (?) (?)1 Anne lived in June 1775 at Boxbourne, Hertfordshire.2

Anne Brett married Richard Darby, son of Richard Darby and Sarah Peachy, at St. Peter's on Thursday, 8 June 1775 at Roydon, Essex.2 The church has walls of flint and rubble, and probably dates back to at least 1260. Historically, Roydon was a parish of scattered farms and cottages, with open fields and common meadows. There were 105 ratepayers named in 1734, and the population was 667 in 1801. On the north and west, rivers form the parish and county boundaries.3

As of 22 April 1776, Anne Brett was also known as Ann with the baptism of her daughter Elizabeth. Anne and Richard Darby became the parents of George Darby circa 1779.
